What is the difference between Nevada OSHA and federal OSHA?

OSHA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. At the federal level, OSHA creates standards that ensure safe and healthful working conditions for workers all over the country.

Some states, such as Nevada, have created State Plans. These plans are OSHA-approved workplace safety and health programs that the state individually operates. Nevada’s State Plan includes state-specific regulations that are at least as strict as federal OSHA regulations.

Will my Nevada OSHA certificate and OSHA 10 card expire?

No, your Nevada OSHA certificate and OSHA 10 card will never expire. However, some employers may require you to complete refresher training every few years to ensure you are up to date on workplace safety and health protocols. You can contact your employer for more information on refresher training requirements for your role.

How long will it take to complete the course?

This course contains 10 hours of federal OSHA Outreach training and three hours of Nevada-specific training. The program will take at least 13 hours to complete.

OSHA has mandated that students can spend no more than 7.5 hours per day completing OSHA Outreach training, so you will spend at least two days completing the federal OSHA portion of your training. Nevada-specific OSHA training does not count toward the 7.5-hour daily limit.

What is an OSHA 10 DOL card?

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issues OSHA 10 cards to workers who complete 10 hours of OSHA-authorized training on industry-specific workplace safety topics. This wallet-sized card is printed on durable plastic and is accepted nationwide as proof of training.

Supervisors and employees with certain safety responsibilities are often required to take OSHA 30-Hour training, which covers additional topics related to workplace safety and health.
